San Antonio police said Carrasco assaulted Jason Banda, 38, on Saturday when Banda visited a relative at a South Side home.

Carrasco was upset at Banda “for having him arrested earlier this year,” his arrest warrant affidavit states.

The relative later told police that Carrasco struck Banda with a handgun. The witness said Carrasco had also assaulted them and threatened to harm their family, the affidavit states.

Banda died as a result of his injuries.

A warrant for Carrasco’s arrest was issued on Wednesday. He is also facing a separate charge of assault causing bodily injury-married, records show.

In March, Carrasco was arrested on a charge of evading arrest or detention and was out on bond.
